Moulali Dargah

Sketch in Pen and Ink technique

Moulali Dargah, Hyderabad, India

I almost grew up seeing the Moulali Dargah. It is very close to where I stay. The location where this dargah is situated gets its name from it and is called Moulali. This dargah is built on a hillock which is a monadnock and is about 614 metres (2,014 ft) high. The architecture of this dargah is unique to the daccani region (The Deccan Plateau). It is a unique amalgam of Indo-Islamic architecture which is found in many other buildings in this region which are more than 400 years old and were built during the rule of  the Shahi Dynasty.
